YEA!!!! Here is how it went down... :-)

I dropped an email last night to my social worker asking what the heck was going on with our LOA. When the phone rang at 9 am this morning and I saw it was our agency, I thought, oh she is calling us to tell us that everything is ok, we just have to wait some more. Well, when I heard matt repeat 'early morning package' and then he started to tear up, I knew we had good news!!!

It was dated 10/12...a week after Emma turned 1. Anyway, here is what it looks like, yea!!

I got the I800 form and the LOA (copy scanned and emailed by our wonderful SW) overnighted to USCIS by 10:30 am this morning!!

We are looking at January travel, yippe! Who doesn't love Beijing in January?! Looks like I need a trip to REI to get some walking boots for the great wall!!

We are coming for you Emma!! Hugs, Mommy & Daddy
